How do I make the crust of my pizza crisps? How do I make the crust of my pizza taste like a brick? How do I make my pizza taste like hotdogs? How do I get my pizza to look like the crust of a baked ham?
Pizza is one of my all time favorite foods and like most people, I want to know how do I make my pizza taste like a brick. How do I make it golden brown and crisp on the bottom? How do I make the crust taste like cardboard? Well, I’m going to show you how.
One of the first things you need to understand about making a crispy bottom crust on your pizza is that you must bake your pizza in the oven. You have two choices here. You can either bake your pizza on a regular pan or you can use an oven rack. Baking on the top of the pizza will result in a crunchier bottom but it also means having to remove the pizza from the oven when it is well done.
A good way to get a crispy pizza crust is to use a pizza stone. There are many different types on the market from which to choose. Just be sure to find one that has the holes to allow for air flow underneath the crust. This way as the pizza bakes in the oven it will cook the sides of the dough evenly resulting in a crisp top. The actual baking of the pizza is much quicker if you use a pizza stone with these holes.
If you don’t want to go to the trouble of baking your pizza on the brick, you can always make a really nice crust on your own. It’s really just a matter of using a cookie cutter to cut out shapes and arranging them on a pizza pan. Be careful however, not to place the cookie cutter in the oven. If the pan comes out burnt, all you have to do is replace the bottom and put it back in the oven.
Now you’re ready to assemble the crispy top! Just mix together the pizza dough and yeast. Work the yeast and dough around the pan until it forms a ring shape. Place the pizza dough into the preheated oven on top of the stones. Bake the pizza in the oven for about one hour or until the bottom is crispy and golden brown.
If you prefer a crunchier bottom, instead of baking on the bricks, line your baking sheet with flour. Take your pizza dough and coat it with flour. Then turn your oven on and put the pizza dough in the center of the oven. Cover the pizza with the floured paper and place it in the oven. Allow the pizza to heat up for about five minutes, and once it does, carefully flip it over so that the flat side faces out towards the door.
Once the pizza crust is ready, you can now fold the floured portion under itself to form a crust. Do this for the entire sides of your pizza. It is best to have your pizza in the oven for about ten minutes so that all of the oil from the crust can circulate and give the pizza a crispy look. Once done, you can now serve and enjoy your fresh and crispy pizza! Best of all, you didn’t have to run outside to get your hands in that hot oven!
How do I make the bottom of my pizza crispy? Using a toothbrush, wipe down your pizza after it comes out of the oven. If there is any oil residue, such as from the toppings or herbs, it can be removed with a brush. Also, make sure your pizza has cooled down sufficiently before cutting into it, as the coolness can cause some splatters on the bottom.
How do I make the bottom of my pizza crispy? Using a cast iron skillet or a non-stick frying pan, cook your pizza crust until it is golden brown. Place it on the pizza stone or pan and allow it to rest for about ten minutes so that it can cook to the golden brown texture you desire. When it is cooked, remove it from the oven and flip it over so that the flat side faces out towards the door.
How do I make the bottom of my pizza crispy? Using a meat tenderizer (or something similar) to soften the tough crust on top of your baked pizza, gently slide the tenderizer under the pizza crust and press down until the tenderizer is buried in the dough. After a minute or two, sprinkle the flattened bottom of your pizza with pizza seasoning (you can use season salt or pizza powder), let it sit covered with the mixture for about five minutes, and then enjoy your new crunchy crust!
